    Cool Anybody here from nearby SEDRO or CLEAR LAKE WA or Upriver?

    Upriver meaning east of WOOLLEY on SR20??

    I live near Sedro, Clear Lake, Burlington up that way?? Anyone in my county? I'm just a hick. I ain't apologizing mind you I just prefer to be honest as much as possible. I was raised that way so that's the deal.
    Mostly I hang with old codgers from 40-45 and up. I don't much go further than Sedro.

    Anyone up this way got good info on 22 ammo without having to sell a kidney for it that would be pretty cool. Gracias Amigo's.
    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    NN, I wish I was up that way even if just for a visit. I would stop in at least for coffee.

    Sometimes I wish I did live in rural areas of WA like you. Here in King County there is no more places you can go plinking. Punching holes in paper at the range can get boring.

    Bummer Freedom. Don't feel so bad FR. Punching paper don't even exist here in my county on DNR land sad to say. I can't say for sure but seems like the last time I shot on DNR land was 2002-2004. That just plain sucks every which way. At least with American Chinese food I can halfway deal with it.

    Places to plink are vanishing daily here in Snohomish county, as well. One reason around here are all the morons completely trashing the countryside with their targets of choice. Big and bad enough to haul it in and shoot the living daylights out of it, but too wussy to clean up after themselves.
    It got to the point where I was spending more time trying to clean up after these azzhats in hopes of keeping the areas open, than I was shooting.
    Then add in the population explosion. There are now housing tracts in areas I used to shoot not ten years ago. Hell, as "wild" as Western Washington is, good luck trying to find somewhere that you can be alone and not run into a dozen REI types on a remote trail.
    Gotta get myself off this soapbox before I get into trouble with the forum rules.

    To get to anything resembling non private land in Skagit or Snohomish counties one has to head as far east as one can including right into/out to east of the down side of the HW20 or HW2 or I 90 passes. That's A LOT OF GAS/FUEL to get there and back again.

    The next time I'm feeling wild and carefree I'll blow my funds on $40 of gas and just drive and look for places to shoot that are safe and away from the unicorn and fruitcake set.

    Noname, you are seriously from the Valley?! I lived in a cabin on 5 acres up in Concrete off the South Skagit River Hwy and in Concrete proper from 1990-2000. Then moved the family down to Mount Vernon from 2000-2010 when my oldest moved on and my youngest married. Spent a couple of years in Anacortes before I moved down here to Santa Fe, NM! What a small, small world.

    Where do you shoot at? There was an old gravel pit off the South Skagit right across from my property back in the 1990's (not sure if it is still used). Is there a range around? I visit my daughter and son-in-law in Bellingham pretty much every year.

    Yeah, King County................. Fort Lewis (or whatever they now call that joint USAF Mc Cord? and Army base...............). Crap Hole. I do remember the Tea Cup (blast from the past).

    So, um, you and I really do not want to know the story. Lots of AWESOME LEO were involved when I was attacked there ;-) That is like 2001.............

    Used to work with the King County SWAT on the back 40 of, then, Fort Lewis.......................................
